What age is good for 1st grade?
Instead of getting caught in the debates of Waldorf grade 1 compared to first grades in other schools I encourage you to learn to observe your child.
A lot of discussion happens on when to start first grade. It makes me sad to see so many mothers confused on what to do and who to trust. One mom emailed me just yesterday and said she was just beside herself because the advice she received from one source was just so counter to what she felt Waldorf was all about and in the face of all the other pressures she was under from her husband, in laws and neighbors, she was sure she'd get the right answer from someone she trusted.
I am now and will always stick to what I believe Steiner recommends for...
